W2RO’s Re-TRAC Connect Database
As part of the Waste to Resource Ontario's ongoing efforts to provide quality, industry specific data in an accessible, effective format, we are continuing to refine and build on our existing database of landfills and organics processing facilities in Ontario.
In 2016, W2RO invested in the Re-TRAC Connect data collection and analysis platform to gather annual facility-based information that could help the business community and different levels of government learn about broader industry trends.
Thanks to the participation of our members and other organizations within the industry, our first surveys were a great success.
- The First Annual State of Waste in Ontario: Landfill Report produced accurate data pinpointing more than 800 active landfill sites and nearly 1,600 closed or inactive sites.
- The First Annual State of Waste in Ontario: Organics Report determined there are 76 organic processing facilities in Ontario.
- The 2021 Landfill Report found that landfill capacity in Ontario will be depleted by 2034 unless major expansions and new sites are approved.
The information is helped to inform businesses with planning decisions while assisting Ontario's Ministry of the Environment as it moves forward with waste diversion policies.
To help improve this database, we are currently finalizing our Transfer Station reports. Our objective is to create a continually evolving platform for managing and monitoring the performance of solid waste collection, processing and disposal systems across Ontario.
